Love Me, the new film starring Kristen Stewart and Steven Yeun, has released its first look alongside its world premiere.

The film is described as a "post-apocalyptic romance", in which a buoy and a satellite meet online and fall in love after the end of human civilization.

The film, which is the directorial debut from Sam and Andy Zuchero, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival between January 24 and 28, with the feature also being available on the online platform during the festival.

"As filmmakers Sam & Andy demonstrate in their wildly imaginative debut feature, telling the love story of a smart buoy and an orbiting satellite that spans a billion years and probes the mysteries of being and consciousness requires legit storytelling dexterity," reads the film's description.

"Love Me's whimsically philosophical, shape-shifting structure ingeniously weaves together the real, the virtual, and the surreal. Its star-crossed, web-paired metallic protagonists - inhabited in different forms by Stewart and Yeun - awkwardly navigate romance and companionship, equipped only with untold petabytes of archived web data, social media, and online videos.

"Awash in these mediated experiences and fabricated expressions of love and identity, they yearn to understand who they are, whether their feelings are real, and for that matter, whether they are real."

Stewart will also have another film, Love Lies Bleeding, premiere at Sundance in January, with the project seeing Stewart in the role of a reclusive gym manager named Lou, who falls hard for ambitious bodybuilder Jackie (Katy O'Brian).

The second feature from Rose Glass, who wowed horror fans with Saint Maud, is described as a "bombastic, larger-than-life sophomore effort" and "an off-the-wall, rambunctious lesbian love story."

Love Me will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2024.
